I will point out I have no personal issues with the man. He seems pleasant enough, he's just not capable of getting us promoted and that's what we need.

See I didn't but again tonight in the post-match he has a dig at people calling for him to go/booing by calling is 'mass hysteria' as if judging him against the very clear targets he's been set and finding him miles short of them is somehow a ridiculous thing to do.
I'm an electrician, if I couldn't do my job properly I would serve on at SpudULike.

We are dragging this out now.  Wyness needs too remove his head from Bruce's arse and give him the sack.  Stop waiting.  It ain't getting any better.
Is that where they keep the Villa engine?

He just said on Radio WM that "we have the makings of a good Championship team"...if that's what he understands his job description to be then he really is the wrong man for the job.

Um, isn't it?

No, it fucking well is not. We need to be a way-too-fucking-good-for-the-Championship team and we should have been looking like one since last spring.
Exactly. The makings of a good Championship team is one that is happy and content to play football and be competitive in this league season after season...not one of a club that aspires to get out of this league and promoted back to the Premier League as soon as possible.

The mass hysteria that he talks about won't go away  because we don't score goals and don't win games, the fat, bullshitting prick.

I'm getting sick of his digs about criticism, regardless of whether he's aiming it at fans or media. 2 wins in the last 13 league games, 1 league win this season, we're meant to be challenging at the top of the table and look less capable of doing it now than when you arrived  6, 9, 10, 11 months ago. How dare anyone not be happy that you're doing an awful job and failing spectacularly. He's started to get on my tits now.

Just as soon as they've finished up with Hurricane Irma. Stay strong.

It's relegation form in this division.

No trains out of South Florida for some strange reason. Taxi for Brucey though.

He is getting an easy ride at the moment compared to the days of Lambert and McLeish.

So after 42 games, 11 months, 2 transfer windows and a large amount of money being given to him to reshape the team in his own vision we are left with the following.


P 42
W 16
D 11
L 15
G 44
A 45
PTS 59

wouldn't get anywhere near the play offs places and for the amount of time and money given to him, being close to having a ''the makings of  a decent Championship team'' in his own words, tell you everything you need to know.
